Review of last weeks golf tips

Last week we very nearly had a very big payday. In the LPGA Pure Silk Classic, our top bet advice, Weechanee Meechai finished T5, having a chance to win late on the back nine. The $1245 payout for a $5 each way bet the highlight of the week. In addition our $225 pick Lauren Stephenson ran 7th, Pornanong Phatlum($01), 16th. The $501 each way pick Na Yeon Choi also made the cut as did Bianca Pagdanagdanan ($201) and Jasmine Suwannapura ($276)

In the PGA Championship, the old champ Phil Mickelsen reigned supreme, but our $1000 pick, Harry Higgs ran 4th, Our $100 pick Louis Oosthuizen ran second and all bar two of our selections made the cut giving us an enormous chance of winning.

LPGA Matchplay

The LPGA starts the ball rollong this week with a new event and a new venue Shadow Creek in Las Vegas. The Tom Fazio designed course is a difficult 74.5 Cr and has a slope of 145. The event is Matchplay over five days including a round robin series for invited players. A different challenge for the tipster.

Betfair prices are not up, so we have our bets for this event which starts tomorrow on Bet 365 as. If you find Betfair prices Wednesday afternoon exceeding these, shift there. No each way this week.
